BIO

Hannah has been doing contortion and other circus arts for eight years. She started out in Los Angeles at Le Studio when she was only twelve years old. She trained all types of circus acts including duo acrobatics, duo trapeze, contortion, and contortion on the trapeze. Her passion, dedication, and love for circus arts showed through right away and resulted in the world renowned 'Steben twins' ( Cirque du Soleils "O" and "Saltimbanco"), taking a notice in her. The Steben twins saw something in Hannah, and began to train her further in trapeze and contortion, becoming her mentors, and long time trainers. After Le Studio Hannah joined the Kinetic Theory circus troupe (Culver City, CA) and primarily focused on contortion. She performed in shows with Kinetic Theory, and on her own all through high school, while still training with Karyne and Sarah. During her last years of high school Hannah got selected to attend the extremely prestigious summer program at Ecole Nationale De Cirque. After coming home from the program she continued performing all over California, and began teaching stretching and contortion classes as well.

Hannah currently attends the University of Redlands in Southern California and is a student of the Johnston center for integrative studies, where her emphasis is helping her develop and create her own circus company. She often travels to perform and teach contortion workshops all around the US. She is the founder and president of the Circus Collective; a newly established performance company at the University of Redlands. The Circus Collective's goal is to take students with potential and teach them the art of circus, making them well rounded performers. Hannah continues to perform and coach all over California, where she is known for her unique outlook on circus arts, unique movement style, and capabilities.
